“Best falafel ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

They have the best falafel. Ask for the falafel with a hole in the middle, like a donut; this makes it even crunchier and very tasteful. This is a very traditional restaurant managed by the same family generation to generation. Have the falafel with some tea with mint.
Delicious!!! Before I left i just wanted to come back.

“Perfect 10!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Afteem gets it right every time, in every way!! Fresh ingredients, local specialties , served in a Clean and efficient manner. Gracious waitstaff and price is attractive. Contiguous to the heart of Bethlehem, Manger Square where the Nativity Church is minutes away. ARRIVE HUNGRY....leave satisfied. The place is full of locals......no better endorsement!!

“after a day i still feel full”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

the food was excellent and plenty of it. if we hadn't been at the hashem restaurant in Amman, we wouldn't think there was something as good. Afteem is just as delicious.

“Great food in the little town of Bethlehem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We were guided here by a local we had met and it didnt disappoint. Run by a local family it appears to be a bit of a local institution. Full of well dressed and hungry people all enjoying the fantastic cut-above-the-rest eastern Med fare of hummous, baba Ganoush, fresh juices and salads, felafel, meat dishes. Recommended although I felt sorry for the neighbouring places who seemed empty.

“Great food for a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We had the hummus, falafel and arabic salad and two beers. All really great and at a very good price. Service was fast and almost polite (which for Bethlehem is about as good as you can hope for!)

It is also really nice inside which you may not imagine from the street.
